Green Waste Recycling Center

The new Green Waste Recycling Center is pleased to provide a convenient and low-cost site for people in Chelan and Douglas counties looking to compost their natural yard and garden waste.

The new Stemilt Organic Recycling Center is located at 719 S. Columbia St. behind Stans Merry Mart.

Why Compost?
The organic waste you put back into the environment can be used for other living things. Rather than going into a landfill your waste becomes a valuable resource for our trees. Its a great way to improve our environment.

  • Yard waste makes up 20 - 30% of garbage
  • Many landfills are filling up and closing
  • Composting yard waste means you send less garbage to landfills

The Green Waste Recycling Center will open as soon as the need arises - i.e. people start mowing their lawns and generating other yard and garden waste, targeted now as sometime March through October. Mon - Fri 9 am - 6 pm, Sat 8 am - 4 pm. They can be reached at (509) 888-8600 ext. 2762

Closed November through February

1. $30.00 Per Ton

2. $ 5.00 Per Yard
